Ecosystems Research

Quincy Teng

My research has focused on the application of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy to environmental and life sciences. We have developed and applied NMR methodology for assessing exposure of fresh-water small fish models to chemicals of environmental concern by means of metabolomics. More recently, we have developed a novel methodology of cell culture-based metabolomics for assessing chemical exposure using human and fish cell lines. Current projects:  applications of NMR spectroscopy to metabolomics, nano particles and plant biology; and assessing chemical toxicity by cellular metabolomics of human cell cultures.
